Apart from Ajay and Emraan, the film will also feature Ileana D'Cruz, Esha Gupta ad Vidyut Jamwal in prominent roles.

Co-produced by Milan and Bhushan Kumar and written by Rajat Aroraa, 'Baadshaho' is a thriller set in the Emergency era of the 70s.

"This is a historical fiction film. We have used some facts, there is lot of stuff that was unusual and exciting. It(Emergency as subject) is a great backdrop for action and thrills. We have done extensive research on the subject," Milan told media.

In India, the 'Emergency' refers to a 21-month period in 1975–77 when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi unilaterally had a state of emergency declared across the country.

When asked if any of the actors would play real life characters, Milan said, "It's a historical fiction film, all characters are grey."

Ajay and Emraan played gangsters in Milan's 2010 blockbuster 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbai'. In 'Baadshaho' they will sport a different look.

"Their (Ajay and Emraan) look will be completely different. It will be rustic...the look will be timeless," Milan said.

The 'Dirty Picture' helmer will collaborate with a foreign action director for 'Baadshaho'. The music includes Rajasthani folk with a funky twist, composed by Ankit Tiwari.

The multi-starrer film is all set to go on floors this August with a 15-day schedule in Mumbai, followed by a two month schedule in Rajasthan.
